Note: Intel has recently announced a security vulnerability that is described at: 

The FW1, FW2, FW4A and FW6 Vaults may be affected by this vulnerability. The FW2B and FW4B are not affected. Protectli understands the urgency of this issue and we are working with our partners to generate BIOS updates to address the issue. We will post the updated BIOS and/or timelines for updated BIOS on this page shortly.


BIOS is the abbreviation for Basic Input Output System. It is a small program that is stored on non-volatile memory that is used to initialize the system hardware during the boot process. BIOS is installed on every system when it ships, but occasionally there are upgrades to the BIOS to address various issues. This page has a table with all of the current versions of BIOS for the Vault. BIOS can be downloaded from this table by clicking on the “Download Link” entry and used to upgrade the BIOS on the Vault.

The currently installed BIOS version can be found on the main BIOS page, as seen in the example screenshot below (circled in red):
